I had the distinct pleasure of attending all three nights. Any one night would have been worthy of release, so that may be why we got a "best of". The one thing I have never been able to grasp is how/why/what-the-hell-were-they-thinking the Loser from 3/24 was not included. That song, on that night, was not only the highlight of the three nights, but also one of those special GD moments when the music played the band. People (well me anyway) actually stopped dancing and were just starring at the stage with mouths agape during that solo. I listen to that track now and still get goosebumps. Easily the best run of shows I saw.

I attended all three nights of Knickerbocker as well. I also went to the 3 shows at Landover before this. All I can say is...WOW.

At the time, we all knew we were seeing legendary performances. The boys were peaking spring of 1990!

Dozin at the Knick was mixed well, in my opinion. Whenever I hook up a new component, get new cables, new speakers, I pop in Dozin to check it out. Hell in a Bucket is played with a ferocity that was never matched in other show openers.
